Excerpt from Chairman’s Message
SCALACS, March 1961

A Golden Anniversary is always an occasion to celebrate – a time to look back and reminisce as well as a time to look ahead and plan for even more vigorous growth. Our March meeting is planned in this spirit. To celebrate we will honor our good friend and colleague, Bill Young, who was selected from a group of strong candidates to receive the first Richard C. Tolman Medal of the Southern California Section. Our congratulations to Bill – his vision and unselfish labor have paved the way for any of us who follow.
